Open Quote Student behavior sucks. They have been told multiple times to stop running through the backyard of some of our condo owners at Village at Redondo. The bus drops them of at 285th, and they run through the backyard to 284th. They curse, and throw rocks if you confront them. Horrible students. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
